Typical of the late sixties, the hippy era. I will never get tired of seeing it again and again. It is very close to the book, except the cliffhanger ending. The novel - or novelisation, because it was written by the screenwriter Troy Kennedy Martin- had an eding far smoother than this one. I will add two things. This movie is inspired - not thru the heist itself - by the great train robbery, Glasgow London heist, where the robbers were caught because of the lack of precautions they took with finger prints in the farm, their logstic headquarters. Here, the gangsters are very careful on this point. Second, talking of precautions, I don't understand that Michael Caine's character, so careful about everything, doesn't ask the bus driver, at the end, to be more careful when he drives the bus in the hairpin moutain downhill road...
